Eleanor Friedberger (of The Fiery Furnaces, her previous group) has announced her new album, New View, will be out January 22, 2016 via Frenchkiss Records. Listen to the album's opening track "He Didn't Mention His Mother" below.
Friedberger arranged the songs on New View with her backing band Icewater. She recorded the album live to tape with producer Clemens Knieper in his converted barn studio in Germantown, New York. It's her first album since 2013's Personal Record.
The first single, "He Didn't Mention His Mother," shows Friedberger's increasingly more straightforward, pop-oriented direction from her work with The Fiery Furnaces, though no less inventive or exciting.
